Warnings on medical implant hacks

9 posts in this topic

Many medical implants are vulnerable to attacks that could threaten their users' lives, according to studies.

Security researchers have developed attacks that locate and compromise implants used to manage conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

One attack identified a radio signal that, if re-broadcast, would have switched off a heart defibrillator.

Researchers say more work needs to be done to secure implants and protect against malicious actions.

We all know in the future there will be some hacker troll controlling a dudes robot arm and making him hit himself with it while yelling "stop hitting yourself". It is inevitable xD
